Illphonics - Gone With The Trends
"Gone With The Trends" is an ode to how wrapped up we've become in social media and internet trends. As a testament to this theory, iLLPHONiCS devised the Seven Deadly Trends as a means of ramping up excitement leading up to the album release. These trends include, among others, egocentrism, materialism, and idolization. Altogether, the album boasts songs about love, having a good time, and even politics. In the soulful track "Sweet Missouri", the band collaborated with St. Louis vocal artist Kristeen Young and legendary David Bowie producer Tony Visconti.
